Norway is expensive and it would be easy just to eat out of the convenience shops to save money. This is the place to go if you only have the budget for one splurge. We both had the cod meals and were really impressed. The fish was perfectly cooked and the veg it came with was equally as good. The... More

This restaurant was a real highlight of our stay in Bergen… So much so, we visited twice! The service provided by Mate was exceptional and one of the reasons we revisited. The food we ordered was at the suggestion of Mate and did not disappoint. The fish soup starter and reindeer main course were both cooked to perfection, with the... More

I've been visited Norway for a long time and somehow I couldn't find a classic restaurant which has the Norwegian style in the atmosphere, food, service till I found Wesselstuen in Bergen finally!!! The place itself is a unique restaurant in Norway in many ways. The whole venue has a special, Norwegian charm, the ornaments, the whole interior invites us... More

Charming place that served us a fantastic "lutefisk" plate. Nicely prepared and it had fantastic taste. The service where way above what others have written so i have no problem recommending this place.

Enjoyed an early Sunday afternoon dinner with my Bergen family. Prices seemed high even for Norway, but Wesselstuen besides being a Bergen institution, is in the middle of the tourist track. The two fish selections ordered by our party were cooked perfectly; the mussels dish and the chicken both satisfactory. Unfortunately the two of us who ordered the famous Bergen... More

Maybe Bergen's famous eatery once, but today this place is a shame. The atmosphere is terrible 80s, and the food average. The service was not particularly good even the restaurant was almost empty (on a Saturday night!). I had a quite good fish, but when eating seafood in such an "upper" restaurant at Norway's west coast I expect creativity, perfection... More

From the outside, this place looks a wee bit murky, but once inside it opens up into a lovely dining room with table linen. We chose a quiet day lunch-wise, so we had good service and the food was well prepared and served. I had a burger, which was excellent.

We have family in Bergen who brought us here. Charming, historical place with excellent food and great service. It was a very slow Sunday night and we had almost the whole place to ourselves. The fish soup (creamy, chowder like) was delicious and so was the burger and the baked fish. Decent beer and wine selection too. It's just far... More

This restaurant is in an old building just off King Olav V square, in a warm room with lots of wood and a host of old murals on the walls; a very cozy spot. The menu is short but has a good balance of fish, meat and vegetarian. I had the fish soup which was good and the veal loin... More
